A Four-Nation Super Series involving four top cricketing nations

Ramiz Raja has been trying to do something new ever since heSp became the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Hence, a few weeks ago, he announced that he will propose a 4-nation Super Series to ICC. This will involve the heavyweights of world cricket. The idea met with mixed opinions. Now, even BCCI has reacted to it.

While speaking to Reuters, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has straightaway talked down the proposal of the series by telling that the chief of cricket bodies across the globe should be on expanding the game of cricket and it is more important than “short-term commercial initiatives”.


In the same statement, Jay Shah also said, “With the IPL window expanding and the ICC (global) events every year in the cycle, our primary responsibility is to safeguard bilateral cricket at home, with emphasis on test cricket.”

He further added, “I am also looking forward to seeing cricket at the Olympics, as that will help the game grow. Expansion of the sport is a challenge that our game faces, and we must prioritise it over any short-term commercial initiative.”

The India-Pakistan face-off is one of the most anticipated games in the cricketing calendar. Due to the political situation between the countries, the duel is at the moment happening only at ICC events. The teams will next meet in the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
